Restoration: Samurai clothing tansu

This clothing chest sat in water during a shipment from Buenos Aires to Miami and sustained damage to both wood and finish. It consisted of cleaning with a bleach solution and distilled water. Next were plenty of wood repairs, such as the scarfed  angled wood piece to the older pack panel- and lots of pegging. Plenty of lacquer cleaning and polishing followed. Then the iron hardware had to be cleaned, refinished, and re-nailed.
